We are delighted to present the widely anticipated documentary, “Bombshell: The Hedy Lamarr Story” at the 3rd Annual Middlebury New Filmmakers Festival.
Director Alexandra Dean premiered the film at the 2017 Tribeca Film Festival to wide acclaim. The film examines a little known side of Hollywood actress Hedy Lamarr’s life. She was proclaimed Hollywood’s “Most Beautiful Girl” in 1940. Off the set, she pursued something much more unusual for women at the time: inventing technology. Lamarr was never credited with being the secret inventor of devices that led to secure wifi, bluetooth and GPS communications – that is, until now.
“Bombshell: The Hedy Lamarr Story” will screen at Middlebury College’s Dana Auditorium at 7:15pm on Saturday, August 26. Filmmaker Alexandra Dean will be at the screening.
